Download More Secure Adobe Reader X For Windows

Adobe has released a new, feature rich, more secure PDF reader (Adobe Reader X) with protected mode.

  2. Open and interact with all types of PDF content like multimedia, drawings, email messages, spreadsheets, etc.
  3. Directly access Adobe’s online services and can do common tasks such as creating PDF files, securely sharing and storing them.

  1. The whole world worries about Adobe Reader over the years and now there is this cut/paste 'press release' on a blog counselor tech site. I think, "No." I will not act on this. Does Adobe X install Xtra mud and problems? Nobody knows because there is no techies looking into this. This is the Extra X to try always do on jkWebTalks, not just cut/paste.

  2. Yes, the product is just released, so we can wait and see the so called ‘Protected Mode’ is really protected!
